Jordan, who has a defense al

Rev. Peter Raible Delivers Open
Letter Opinion Of Administration
Copy Editor
Charges that the University fac
ulty is "discouraged, sick at heart
and fearful" were made by the
Rev. Peter Raible, pastor of the
Lincoln Unitarian Church in an
open letter to Chancellor Clifford
Hardin delivered Sunday morning.
The Rev. Mr. Raible said that
during recent months he had spok
en with many professors in many
departments and that they gener
ally reflected these views.
The Lincoln minister stated that
there are always those who would
constrict the free search after
truth. He said, "They say you
may go so far and no further."
Raible added that such people
would besmirch a whole univer
sity if it does not give way to
their desires.
"But what cannot be accom
plished through public attack can
often be achieved through the back

door through Insidious infiltration
of a type similar to Communist
subversion. It is precisely the dan
ger the university now faces," he
"Through a scrupulous regard
for honesty, through your public
statements, through your private
acts, you can easily chase the
goblin of fear from the campus."
Raible was directing the advice
to Dr. Hardin.
The chancellor was called the
"most important man in the state"
in the sermon. The Rev. Mr. Rai
ble said that since the policies
followed by the University will no
doubt be the "single, most influ
ential factor in the future of the
State of Nebraska" the place the
chancellor plays is foremost.
Commenting on the State of the
University address made by Chan
cellor Hardin Oct. 4, Raible noted
that the chief problem of the school
today is not the parking situation
or the building program but the
maintenance of the highest of qual
ities of faculties.
He quoted Hardin as saying, "I
have said that I consider the
maintenance of a quality teaching
staff the biggest and toughest
problem which the University fac
es." Raible then stated, "Like many
citizens I am saddened by the
blithe way we talk about super
highways at a million dollars a
mile; but look on such a figure
for faculty salary increases as an
outrageous sum.
Ultimately, though, salary is
not the most important factor in
attracting fine teachers. . .The
single most important thing for
any faculty is a very simple thing
the atmosphere a university pro
vides. This atmosphere of a uni
versity involves the morale, the
significance, and the freedom
which each instructor and profes
sor feels here."
Raible concluded that the pro
fessor is so precious that we should
allow no orthodozy, no pressure,
no temporary goal to silence or de
base him in the free quest of
truth. As a precious person, obed
dient to the dictates of his own
conscience, he must follow the
conclusions blazed by bis own
stt'dy, he added.
He ended his Sunday sermon
stating that the faculty only wish
es to do that to which they have
committed their lives to seek and
teach the truth, wherever they
may find it, according to their
highest inspirations and with their
greatest ability, answering only to

of the state should take more in

of Regents elections; and the ad
ministration of the school."
He noted that students, because
they "are here today and gone
too soon" cannot get a sustained
interest in the problem.
"They can be a chief influence
through their parents who must in
turn stand foursquare for free
dom. Students, in the long run,
can see . that a similar lethargy
on the part of the faculty never
reoccurs in the future."
The minister said that he had

purcussions of that oath. A poorer
